  1. I have seen passengers playing the piano in nearly empty lounges during the day. BUT, they have always been accomplished musicians. Not to be insensitive, but I don’t think it would be pleasant to listen to someone “practice” unless they were quite good!
  2. As a Browns fan, I really hate to agree with “steelers36” ... but he is correct. The only time you’ll see a seat change is when there is a physical equipment change. Usually, you’ll see that change on you’re EZAir booking page. But, we did have a major change in our recent flight to Barcelona. It showed up in our Delta booking way before it showed on the EZAir page. I actually had to call Princess after several weeks and they called Delta and said “you’re correct ... our system had not caught up with their change.” Princess then immediately updated the info. So it makes sense to occasionally check both EZAir AND the airlines website.
  3. We were just on the Emerald in the Mediterranean in October. We LOVE the new bedding!! Actually, my wife has investigated purchasing it for our bed a home.
  4. Princess always sends out this schedule to, hopefully, spread out the crowds arriving at the port. But, anyone can get onboard once boarding begins. That’s usually around noon. There are no guarantees... late arrival, extra cleaning, etc. can delay boarding. However, boarding isn’t delayed very often!
  5. We got the upsell from a mini to a full suite for a 14-day transatlantic last year. It was $900/ea. and we jumped at it. Great aft cabin (with huge wrap-around balcony) was great considering we had so many sea days. Loved all the perks that came with it. We also got the upsell offer for an 11-day Mediterranean voyage that we were on last month. However, with eight ports it just wasn’t worth the extra dollars since we’d be off of the ship most of the time.
  6. There are 1,000's of topics discussed on these threads and you are, somehow, offended because someone asks about pickle ball!?!?!?
  7. We were just on the Emerald in October and played (non hosted) on the basketball court on sea days. The net was in horrible shape and the court was less than regulation. The “protective nets” were so close to the back line that you just overlooked foot faults on serving. But we still had a lot of fun!! They had decent paddles and lots of balls. The wind was not much of a factor even though we were sailing during play time. A combination of moderate players and newbies. Only about 8-10 players would show up at the scheduled time.
  8. I don’t know why the “new” topic added the above old post ... so pay no attention to it. My question is whether the Internet was updated when the Pacific Princess went through it refurbishment? If you’ve sailed on her since then, what was your experience?
  9. We’ve used EZair many times, but always for international European flights, and always saved considerable money over booking direct. We recently booked a Vancouver to Hawaii cruise for September 2020. Our flights are Phoenix to Vancouver and then Honolulu to Phoenix. Currently, the EZair first class fare is exactly the same as booking directly through the airline. What’s your experience? I realize I’m looking at a booking almost 10 months out. Should I expect EZair fares to drop when we’re six months out, etc? Thanks.

  11. We’re currently on the Emerald Princess and today (our first sea day) the Walk for the Cure is scheduled for 11:30am!
  12. We leave today for Barcelona using Delta One (Business Class) that we booked through EZAir as soon as flights were available (about 330 days out). Fare was less than half of what it was booking directly through airline. I checked fare often but it was never lower than I originally booked. Very easy to book through Princess site.
  13. Heading to Barcelona tomorrow to meet the Emerald Princess. We're booked in a deck 8 aft mini-suite and happy to read all the positive reviews.
  14. We almost always book private excursions. They are most cost effective when you can book them with a few other couples. As others have said, a good place to look for shared excursions is on the Roll Call for your sailings.
  15. We usually hear pretty quickly when we accept an up-sell. We accepted the offer on a transatlantic last year and moved from a mini-suite to a full suite. It was awesome ... especially with so many sea days!
